Murfreesboro Medical Clinic & SurgiCenter is committed to meeting the needs of Rutherford County's growing community. In addition to adding two new locations in 2019, MMC will be adding five new doctors to its team of physicians.
The physicians joining MMC this fall are: Christopher Albergo, M.D. (Endocrinology), Lauren Blackwell, D.O. (Pediatrics), C. Brad Bledsoe, M.D. (Dermatology), Britni Caplin, M.D. (ENT), and Brittany Cook, M.D. (Ophthalmology).
"With a national shortage of physicians, it is becoming more and more challenging to find quality physicians to meet the growing healthcare needs of our community," noted Joey Peay, MMC's Chief Executive Officer. "For MMC to find five quality physicians to join us in 2019 in addition to the nine that began practicing at MMC in 2018 is truly remarkable!
